Eggplant Rollatini the Healthier Way

Eggplant Rollatini the Healthier Way

Contributed by Marcia Selden Catering

We love this healthier version of the classic breaded and fried rollatini. It’s lighter in calories but still packs a heavy flavor punch with ricotta, basil, fresh lemon and nutmeg filling. It works as an appetizer or an entrée and is the perfect summer dish.

Eggplants are actually a fruit, just like tomatoes—and they’re part of the Nightshade family, which also includes Tobacco! Eggplants contain the highest amount of nicotine found in any vegetable! But fear not—you’d have to eat 20 lbs of eggplant to ingest the same amount of nicotine as a cigarette. Eggplant is also a great source of fiber and is very low in calories at just 35 per cup.
